American-style muscle gets backed up here with real kiwi horsepower. A long, aromatic list of hops like Centennial, Citra and Simcoe should lead you to expect a massive bitterness and sensory hop presence, and you wouldn’t be far off that expectation at all. One for the hop heads.

From a bottle. Biscuit malt aroma, smooth, not too much of a hop punch, might have faded a bit with age. Pretty nice drop.

Golden beer served in a Pilsner glass1cm frothy head well carbonated. Mild to medium hop aroma. Bitterness is strong but seems to work well. Leaves a lovely mouthfeel. Tastes like an IPA but as its only 5.7%abv I respect that they've called it a hoppy ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden pour. Foamy white head. Citrus, grapefruit and mango on the nose. Sweet bready malts. Resinous taste, tropical fruits. Acidic but pleasant. Well balanced strong malt backbone. Excellent

On tap at Pour House. Pours a yellow amber color with a bit of head. Sharp hop profile. Some flavors I'm not keen on.

Great aroma mandarin, bit of resiny pine (just a bit), a touch floral a bit of caramelised sugar, maybe the faintest touch of waxy granny smith skins. Taste is same, but this all hits up front, middle drops out a bit then a decent piney bitterness comes and lingers. Could drink this all night.

Tasted in bottle from Fine Wine Delivery Co. Cloudy golden, brown with minimal, long lasting head when poured for the first time in glass. The second glass poured with a thicker head. Subtle hints of malts on the nose, nothing too extreme. The malts on the front palate are far more present, with short finish. Rather intense sensations but begins to fade quite quickly. A well balanced beer, drunk with a succulent scotch fillet, wonderful match. Not over powering but very much enjoyable.

Peach coloured pour. Resinous hop aroma. Taste is the resinous hops with a perfect buzzy bitterness. Great stuff for a session.

Andrus86 (166) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2015
BOTTLE. Hazy orange pour with huge fluffy white head. Faint sweet floral notes on the nose. Very sweet flavours up front mostly your typical citrus but also a touch of mint? Sweet hoppy finish... One of the better NZ pale ales I’ve had. Sourced Pourhouse Dunsborough

Purchase from Carwyn Cellars. Very enjoyable, refreshing Ale on a hot day. Good stuff from Panhead.

Bottle from The Beer Cellar online store (April 2014). Clear dark orange/amber, off-white head, lots of fruity, juicy hops, peach, apricot, medium chewy resiney/piney bitterness, medium caramel sweetness, long resiney bitter finish. Very good.
